Under pressure

The majority of small retailers would like to cancel postage paid returns, but fear disadvantages in the competition. With a statutory minimum fee and thus the same rules of the game for everyone, this concern is significantly lower, explained the economic researchers.

For many large retailers, on the other hand, free returns are a strategic advantage in competition, which are economically worthwhile. They would be critical of a prescribed minimum fee. The federal association bevh also warns: «» A legally binding return shipping fee would represent a state intervention in the market and competition, which must always be the last resort in the event of a market failure. In our opinion, the findings from the study are not sufficient to decide this question. «»

How artificial intelligence should help out

According to the Bamberg researchers, a quarter of all returns today can be saved by using size information that is binding for all clothing manufacturers and a functioning online size advice system. Ordering items in three sizes and three colors and keeping one is common practice today: almost half of the parcels of clothing and shoes are returned, like. Today, sizes are only «» meaningful to a limited extent and sometimes misleading. However, it would be up to the manufacturer to change that. Cell phone cameras for body measurement, data analysis and artificial intelligence could also make many returns superfluous when it comes to size advice — «» if dealers and customers also use the technologies «».

FPÖ club boss Herbert Kickl literally blabbed his former party leader Heinz-Christian Strache. Strache operated a «» document washing machine «» and «» put cuckoo eggs in the liberal accounting «». The fact that Strache wanted to take over the leadership of the Vienna party, which he had harmed, was a «» chutzpah «». «» It never gets any stranger, «said Kickl in the ORF report on Tuesday evening.

«» I am one of those who are most disappointed about what has happened in the last few months, «» said Kickl, who, as the longstanding General Secretary of the Federal Party, did not want to know anything about what was happening in the Vienna party and possible malversation under Strache . That was possible because «» someone who makes such malversations does not hang on to the big bell, «» said Kickl.

«There is no one else who speaks of secession except Baron himself»

Kickl described the behavior of the local councilor Karl Baron, who was voted out as President of the Freedom Economy (FW) on Monday, as «» ridiculous «». «» There is no one else who speaks of the split apart from Baron himself (…) accompanied by Mr. Rumpold (ex-FPÖ politician Gernot Rumpold, note), who has been exhumed again. «»

Criticism of Bakan Connections and proximity to Russia

Kickl also criticized the Balkan connections and the closeness of the previous party leadership to Russia. It never understood and wanted to end it, said the club chairman.

«» Would like a quick solution «»

He justified the fact that Strache’s expulsion from the party took so long with the peculiarities of the Vienna party statute. “There is not only the beauty of the constitution, but also the beauty of party statutes.” “Days ago he said that expulsion was a matter of hours” “because I wanted to express my discomfort. Like many others, I want a quick fix «». At the same time, however, it must be made solid and clean. Strache was therefore given the opportunity to take a position before the party court (not the arbitral tribunal). «» That’s a good thing. That brings peace. «»

Strache does not object to exclusion from the FPÖ and is considering political comeback — «» Now I am looking ahead «»

I take note of my publicly announced exclusion from the FPÖ Vienna by LPO Dominik Nepp and I will not take action against him by way of an objection, «» wrote Heinz-Christian Strache on his Facebook page on Friday afternoon.

His «» love of politics «» was «not extinguished» by the events, «said Strache.

Strache «» motivates «» for comeback

Strache direct his gaze forward. The «» enormous popularity from the population «» made him think more about a political comeback next year.

The support «motivated» him not to turn his back on politics, his supporters and the citizens of this country. His membership in the FPÖ is now history, «» an essential chapter «» of his life has ended, according to Strache.

Strache saw the responsibility of his former party friends with his «» initiated and committedly promoted unification talks and serious efforts «» to settle a dispute. The courts will now have to deal with the open issues, according to the excluded ex-FPÖ boss.

After a rally in front of the Technical University (TU) Vienna, a group of students occupied the ballroom of the university on Tuesday afternoon. Among other things, they are demanding a higher budget for universities and an end to access restrictions and tuition fees. They only want to withdraw when they have presented their demands to government negotiators.

The protest started with a rally under the motto «» We’ve had enough «» in front of the TU main building, in which around 100 people took part. The protest group arose from a group of TU students who originally drew attention to the lack of space at the university a few weeks ago and demanded more rooms and infrastructure for the students. In the meantime, the list of demands includes not only the funding of the universities and free and open university access, but also less pressure to perform and less schooling.

«This is a wink with the fence post to Sigi so that she remembers her concerns.»

The addressee was, among others, coalition negotiator and ex — «» unibrennt «» — activist Sigrid Maurer: «» This is a sign with the fence post to Sigi so that she can remember her concerns, «» it said at the rally. Among other things, this featured posters with the motto «» # reburning «» — an allusion to the occupation of the Audimax at the University of Vienna ten years ago.

Maurer does not accept claims until Thursday

After the rally, it was actually occupied — in this case, however, not an auditorium, but the university’s ballroom. After a conversation with a delegation from the group, TU Rector Sabine Seidler offered her support for handing over the demands to the government negotiators, but the hall should be cleared for this. Maurer himself wants to take on the list of demands — but only on the Thursday after the plenary day in the National Council.

Occupiers persevere

In any case, the occupiers themselves want to hold out, the APA said in the evening. «There was no deal with the rectorate,» said a spokesman for the APA. “We are preparing for all eventualities — staying here overnight or being carried out peacefully.” “Conditions in the hall are currently unworthy: emergency exits are blocked and no food is allowed in the hall.

The economy wants to tighten sick leave for employees. These could be decided on next Tuesday in the transition committee for the Austrian Health Fund (ÖGK), which will be created on January 1st from the nine regional health insurance funds. The union was alarmed.

In one of the APA’s request for a new «sickness regulation» document, it is stated that in the event of suspected abuse, the employer will in future have «» entitlement to an examination of the state of health «». At present, the employer only has the option to initiate a check of the employee by the cash register.

Big difference whether the employer can order a review

In an interview with the APA, the chairman of the private employees’ union, Barbara Teiber, described this demand as a «» violent story «». There are already numerous reviews and it makes a big difference whether the employer can initiate or order a review.

The cause should also be disclosed

The GPA-djp chairman thinks that the confirmation of the incapacity for work should not only include the beginning, but also the probable duration and cause of the sick leave as well as the medically ordered times of going out or bed rest. The Continued Remuneration Act already provides that the employee has to present the employer with a confirmation of the start, probable duration and cause of the incapacity for work. However, the economy points out in its claim document that confirmations often do not provide for a foreseeable duration and «» unnecessarily burden the employer because they cannot be planned. Teiber explained that the Continued Remuneration Act only deals with the duration of continued remuneration, which is longer in the case of an accident at work than for other reasons.

The new order will probably be decided on Tuesday

The new health regulations for the ÖGK are to be decided on next Tuesday in the so-called transition committee. For Teiber it is «» to be feared that the Chamber of Commerce will get a majority for its ideas. Although there is parity between employer and employee representatives, it is currently not foreseeable how the ÖAAB representative will vote on the employee side.

«» General suspicion «»

The GPA chairwoman sees the tightening demands demanded by the economy as a «» general suspicion «» against the employees. This «» expresses an attitude of mistrust towards the employees. The ÖGK should be instrumentalized in the interests of the employers, one can now see why the employers wanted to change the majority. Teiber believes that the economy wants to trade the high level of performance harmonization announced by the turquoise-blue government for the tightening of sick leave.

What do you say?

I find this new «» sickness order «» …

  • Great! Employees can no longer «turn blue» so easily.
  • Awful! It is none of the employer’s business why I am sick or whether I am bed rested.
